Every now and then you might need to block specific third parties from accessing your Internet sites. There are a number of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and create fake visits and website traffic. There's also spammers that leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to site articles. This kind of things may significantly undermine your hard work, simply because no one likes to visit an Internet site with hundreds of fake comments, plus the increased site traffic from both spammers and bots may generate high load on the web server on which your Internet site is hosted, that could result in the site not working properly. Among the most effective solutions in this case is to block the IPs which generate the fake traffic, as a way to be certain that the visits to your Internet site are legitimate.
